Children's Aid Foundation helps vulnerable kids across Canada overcome the obstacles in life that hold them back

CTA Holiday Hope

Our kids need your help to have hope and joy this holiday season. Show them you care and that our community is looking out for them. With your cash donation, Children’s Aid Foundation will provide essential supports for kids and youth like counselling and post-trauma therapies, enrichment opportunities and life skill development like camp, cooking classes, and recreation programs, and education interventions like tutoring and learning disability assessments and accommodations.
Thank you for helping us meet our goal of over $110,000! Combined with the funds raised through our other holiday programs, including the Holiday Season Celebration, we raised a grand total of $201,000 for at-risk youth.
The Children’s Aid Foundation believes that all kids have the right to grow, thrive, and lead happy lives. But, youth who experience abuse and neglect lack almost everything that most others take for granted, like a safe and stable home with unconditional love.


Other ways you can make a difference this holiday:

  • Help fill the sleigh this holiday season. Support by making a donation of new, unwrapped toys, essentials and gift cards!

  • Spread holiday cheer with our festive cards. Order a customized or assorted pack (great for corporate groups).

  • Give a symbolic gift and honour someone special in your life or pay tribute to their memory by donating to the Children’s Aid Foundation. Tribute donations are a great way to let someone know how much they've impacted your life

"During the holidays, being a youth in care without any family is the most difficult thing. The holiday gifts that I received were amazing and inspiring because I could actually [join in] conversations with friends; I felt like I was somebody."
– Tamia, former youth in care
